Barefoot Runners Society
Forster Adventure Race
Golly what an experience that was!!!
Not really a race report as it was a team event, nor a product review as I'm not that special but here's my rundown on things.
I was never actually supposed to be competing in this event. My next run was going to be the glow worm in June. However..... three weeks out from event the team swimmer gets injured....after a week of faffing around I announced that I would swim to which my husband promptly replied, "Don't be ridiculous."
He swapped from the run leg to the swimming leg......and had a week to train before our local pool shut for the season!!! And muggins here got nominated for the run leg. Longest run to date was about 14kms , mainly getting lost around the trails here with a lot of walking and scrambling. I blew out my xero huaraches that I had worn on the last few runs over...
Dissected: The Incredible Human Foot
BBC 4 (their more eclectic channel) had a very interesting show last week about the human foot. Aside from the fact that they dissected (well, somewhat ) a foot, they also had a few segments on the wonders of the foot in general.
Catch it if you can.
The show was called Dissected: The Incredible Foot. It was a companion to another show in which they dissected a hand.
In this case, the format of the show is to slowly work their way through the foot, while, between each layer, giving us a vignette about something else interesting about how the foot works and what some scientists have found out about how we walk and...

Recap of Chester County Hospital's Dash 4 Diabetes 5K
I am tucked inside a pack of runners waiting for the start of the 5K. It’s bright but chilly because of the strong winds that are blowing, and I feel somewhat grateful that the pack is sheltering me some from it. As far as I can tell from the time I’ve been walking around before the start of the race, I am the sole crazy one, the sole one with bare soles. My throat tickles, I am a little bit ill, the second time I’ve been coming down with an illness in the last 3 weeks. My mouth is a bit dry, the blood sugar is about 150 mg/dL, and I did a small bolus injection into muscle about 20 minutes earlier. It’s maybe not enough, but when I took the injection, I felt uncertainty about whether I would be able to sustain a moderate effort and as a diabetic; it’s always a more cautious...
